Based Therapy
by Prof Anthony Bateman

Mentalization is the process by which we implicitly

and explicitly interpret the actions of ourselves and others
as meaningful on the basis of intentional mental.
Unsurprisingly people with mental health problems have
been shown to have mentalizing problems, that is,
understanding their own mental states and those of
others. Mentalizing deficits have been demonstrated
in schizophrenia, personality disorder, autistic
spectrum disorder, depression and other psychiatric
disorders although the causes of the mentalizing
problems differ in the different disorders. Nevertheless
mentalizing problems contribute to the clinical
presentation of all mental health disorders and as a result
it is important that mental health professionals have an
understanding of mentalizing and how to help patients
improve their mentalizing capacities.
